Hello & welcome to my second ever Pre-Trip Report! If you are interested in any of my previous TRs from our December '09 trip or our July/August '10 weekend Babymoon trip, check out my signature! The basics for this trip: WHO? Me (25, will be 26 on the trip), DH (26 will be 27 on the trip), and DS (2 months, will be 12.5 months on the trip) WHAT? A Disney vacation, of course! 9 days/8 nights with 5 day park hoppers. 2 travel days, 5 park days, and 2 rest/resort days. WHERE? Hmm...resort still undetermined. WHEN? November 4th-12th WHY? First of all, we are taking this trip to celebrate DS's first birthday in WDW! We originally planned to go right after his actual birthday, which is October 24th. But then we started researching, and realized if we waited a couple of weeks we could be in WDW for Festival of the Masters (heard about this on a podcast, and it sounds like something DH & I would really enjoy), and hopefully Osborne Lights if they start up around the same time this year that they did in 2010. Right now, he just absolutely loves staring at lights, so we are hoping he will love the O Lights too! So those are the basics, but I'll give a little more detail in the upcoming posts. I hope you'll join in as I plan our first trip as a family of 3! TABLE OF CONTENTS The Characters Where are we gonna sleep? + Tickets! AP Holders?! Trip Purchase!
